Product Description

A 25th Anniversary Edition of the classic that helped launch the Centering Prayer movement.

Centering Prayer is a precious part of the ancient spiritual traditions of the West. When Finding Grace at the Center was first published in 1978, people all over the world welcomed this practical guide to a simple and beautiful form of meditative prayer. Reflections and advice on Centering Prayer's possibilities---and its pitfalls---are presented with clarity and simplicity, with a vision of the deeper life of the soul that contemplative prayer can bring about. Now, with a new foreword by Father Basil Pennington, another generation will discover the amazing difference Centering Prayer can make in their lives.

Finding Grace at the Center explains:

  • The prayer of The Cloud of Unknowing
  • Posture and relaxation
  • The three simple rules of Centering Prayer
  • How to cultivate Centering Prayer throughout all aspects of your life
Whether you're familiar with Centering Prayer or just learning about it for the first time, this inspirational and informative guide will introduce you to the practice and show you how Centering Prayer can strengthen your connection to faith.
